Thank you everyone for the feedback!  ;D

Joe Musashi: I recommend Spectaculator and SpecEmu, which were used for game testing before release. An user reported a problem with ZX Spin, which although having many useful features for developers shows also quite a few bugs and has not been updated for a very long time, so I do not recommend it for general emulation.
